I just felt rejuvenated. I felt excited. Perhaps local fans will cut Comrie some slack, and not boo him every time he touches the puck. Only one former Oiler, Chris Pronger, has infuriated locals more. General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Mike Comrie on a one-year contract. His agent Ritch Winter said he was talking to three other teams seriously about signing Comrie, who turns 29 on Saturday.
In what stands as a classic case of letting bygones be bygones, Comrie and the Oilers have settled their differences to the point where I believe the ink is a formality and the unlikeliest of do-overs will begin when Comrie reports for training camp physicals Saturday. Mike Comrie is almost 29, a small forward whose skills, like his contract offers and salary expectations, are in obvious decline. It should surprise no one that he is unsigned even as National Hockey League training camps approach. Players like him will forevermore enter September without contracts.
Not valuable or young enough to secure a real offer and a cherished roster spot, yet not completely used up, his ilk occupies the humbling middle ground created by the restrictive nature of salary capanomics. He might be one training camp injury away from a massive one-year deal. He might have to swallow his pride altogether and go somewhere on a tryout basis.
And he might wait months for the phone to ring.
Notwithstanding persistent rumours, the Oilers are not in negotiations with Mike Comrie and have no plans to sign him, Tambellini said. While Comrie is warm to the idea, Oilers management is not unanimous in their desire to bring him back. It may be the hottest rumour on Internet sites, but forget about Mike Comrie and the Edmonton Oilers kissing and making up.
